Our AGM has been postponed for health and safety reasons (Covid restrictions) but the committee remain active behind the scenes with occasional "Zoom" meetings. The committee are looking at the feasibility of holding some race days (single day sporting events) in 2021 and members will be updated nearer the time.

 

Also the membership renewals are now becoming due, we are hoping to have some more convenient electronic payment methods in place very shortly. Whilst we have not had the opportunity to hold a championship type racing calendar this year due to Covid, we still encourage members to keep their membership "paid up" and current to enable the society to run with the necessary insurance cover etc. This insurance is also vital when members go testing outside of the formal racing events. More detail on membership renewals will follow shortly.

CORONA VIRUS

Whilst the Covid Virus continues to disrupt our lives, we remain vigilant particularly in light of the fact that our society does have a high proportion of elderly members and people in the higher risk groups. Therefore we remain "closed" as far as normal racing is concerned. We will update this situation once we are further "out of the woods". Hopefully 2021 will bring more normality back to our racing.

This years racing calendar and annual championship is regretfully cancelled. As soon as it is appropriate and safe for us to have a get together we will put the wheels in motion.

In the mean time, stay safe, continue to observe the latest government advice and keep social distancing, sanitise hands, wear a face mask and avoid contact with others.

If you experience any of the virus symptoms, please stay at home and self isolate.

Our AGM would ordinarily be held in November. With the second "lockdown" rooted in place this  month, we will of course not be able to hold it in the usual way. We will update and advise membership when we can re-schedule a face to face or possibly a zoom meeting.
